About this book

The use of haploid plants is of increasing importance in plant biology and plant breeding. This book illustrates how the advances in plant molecular and cell biology provide an exciting means for the analysis of androgenesis in terms of pollen development and the initiation of embryogenesis. It provides both an appraisal of techniques and their practical application, and is the most up-to-date source of information about the biology of gametophytes.


Contents

A critical analysis of existing haploidization techniques * Genetic analysis of in vitro androgenesis response in maize * Experimental control of pollen development * Microspore culture: a model for investigating the role of stress in the induction of embryogenesis * Mechanism of asymmetric division and cell fate determination in developing pollen * Use of haplo-diploidisation for plant breeding * Priorities for the future * The scientific achievements of J.B. Bourgin.
